The original Star Trek series was about hope, it was about our need to explore and strive to be the best versions of ourselves we can be. It was an aspiration series about a crew of scientists who wanted to sometimes punch things and would often sleep with green women.
Will Ferrell's moving rendition of the show's theme encompasses all of those things at once, and it's hard to listen to without the sting of tears in your eyes. This is why we love science fiction, and the majesty of the unknown.
God bless Will Ferrell for reminding us of what's really important in life.
